"Indian boy wanna go downtown/Iko Iko All Day/and if you don't like what the Big Chief say, just jok-a-mo-feena-nay!"

the best lyrics in iko are "EVERYBODY SAY!" "I'M TALKIN BOUT!" and sometimes "IN THE MORNIN!"

thanks for this post. i don't listen to iko often enough and it was the perfect jam for this sunny day afternoon. i played a couple in a row (iko iko iko iko?) that i remembered being fun and was grinning so hard that i couldn't eat my sandwich! 7/7/89 and 12/27/89 all day!
